About The Boxcar Cowboy

The 1930’s. The dollar flatter than work at the cannery. Fifteen years old and no future in sight? Charlie would chase one to the end of the rail line that ran out of town.

From author Pierre Berton’s book on the Great Depression comes the legend of the boy from Prince Edward County, Ontario, who became known in every corner of the land as THE BOXCAR COWBOY.
